2013 Most Eligible Tigers

What’s that, you say? You’re single? And ready to mingle?
Well, aren’t you in luck. We at the Gazette thought you may want to meet eight of Dalhousie’s most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, all of whom are single athletes and ready to mingle.
Each of these fine young men and women bring something different to the table. Perhaps you want to stroll through Point Pleasant Park with a hockey player, hook up to Justin Timberlake’s music, or go skinny dipping in the moonlight. Whatever the case, we’ve got a match for you.
And if you really can’t make up your mind—we even have a set of twins.
This is our gift to you, Dal. So, the next time you go out to a game or a meet, make sure you cheer extra loud.
